The SC connector features a 2.5mm Zirconia Ceramic ferrule and a push/pull coupling mechanism for a fast and reliable connection.

A range of pigtail, simplex and duplex SC connectors are manufactured including Standard and Premium Low Loss Grades which are suitable for various applications.

The SC connectors are available for single mode UPC with blue boots, for APC with green boots  and for  multimode PC with red or black boots  suitable for 900µm, 2mm or 3mm cable diameters.

The SC/APC connector is available with a pre-angled ferrule designed for 8 degree angle polishing.

The SC connector  housing and duplex clip are available in standard colors including blue (single mode), green (single mode APC) and beige (multimode).
